Contrasting concerts at The Crossing

by | 4 October 2017 | Music, Worksop

The ‘Music @ The Crossing’ concert programme resumes in October with two very different contrasting and mouth-watering events.

Do you recall the classical vocal quartet Amore who sang on the Thames and “kept the Jubilee spirit alive and wowed the Nation as they sang for the Queen amidst torrential rain and disintegrating sheet music” (as one daily paper put it) at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations on TV?

On 7th October at The Crossing, Newcastle Street, Worksop, the immensely talented mezzo-soprano Victoria Gray, who sang in that quartet, shares a programme with the young virtuoso concert pianist Julian Clef who is a protege of the legendary pianist Sir Andras Schiff. The programme is an interesting mix of light and serious classics for voice and piano.

Julian’s story is the stuff of fairy tales — discovered in Kerala, India in his early teens, and almost self-taught, he was befriended by a Derbyshire couple and brought to the UK to start his training at Manchester’s Chethams and the Royal Northern College and more recently the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
Tickets for this concert cost £8.00, £4.00 for under 16s.

Then on 21st October is Thoresby Colliery Band who always delight with their high quality, entertaining programme played in in the splendid musical acoustics of at The Crossing.

We are fortunate to have a Championship Section band based so close to Worksop in Clumber Park’s Hardwick Village. Tickets for this concert cost £10.00, £4.00 for under 16s.
